Chili`s - Jazirat az Zamalik

Chili`s

Chili`s: Chili`s

It is the famous American chain.
This restaurant is located on the Nile City mooring boat.
It has two levels,both levels has a Nile view.
The place is very child friendly(as every place in Cairo).
There are four branhes of Chili`s in Cairo,but the one located on the Nile is my personal favorite.

Favorite Dish: Almost everything on the menu is good,,but my favorite is the crispy chicken salad. and for the dessert it`s either the chocolate molton(it`s a choclate cake served with vanilla ice cream)or the apple pie,also served with icecream.

A nice place to dine if you`re visiting Egypt with your kids..it`s a family oriented restaurant.the seats next to the Nile view are non-smoking...

Thomas Pizza - Jazirat az Zamalik

Thomas Pizza

Thomas Pizza: Pizza,pizza!

In all of the times I came to Cairo and passed this place it never accured to me it has the most amazing&delicous pizza.
The place is renovated,which allows you to see your pizza being prepared.The high chairs and tables makes a very unique atmosphere.Walls are painted with a dark green color which is the restaurant`s theme colour.
Written on the sign that is was established in 1922.

Favorite Dish: The Thomas restaurant serves more than 20 kinds of pizzas some are vegetarian and some are with pork and ham,,something you will not find everywhere in Cairo or Zamalek.
It also serves sandwiches and salads.

Picture on the wall - Jazirat az Zamalik

Picture on the wall

Abu El Sid: Egyptian Cuisine

Pronounced Abou El Seed........

Feels that you are walking through a time machine when you enter this place,it takes you back in history at the time of the pashas,it`s very cosy.

It also has a bar serving Alcohol beverages.
It opens for lunch and dinner.
Kids are not allowed after 7 p.m,it serves the Shisha(water pipe)

To me,,going to Cairo and not dining here,is like going to Egypt and not seeing the Pyramids ;-)

Favorite Dish: This restuarant is famous for it`s (molokheyyah) dish,,it`s a green leaf vegetable cooked with lots of garlic and onions(it`s called ta`liyyah the combination of onion and garlic)and chicken stock,served with white rice.
This is a very famous dish in Egypt,,it also can be cooked with meat stock or even rabbits in some places.

Arabica cafe - Jazirat az Zamalik

Arabica cafe

Arabica Cafe: Arabica cafe

I have found out this cafe recently,And I have loved it,the atmosphere,the service and the coffee is all just right.
The best thing about it that all tables are coverd with white paper that you can draw on,they will provide you with crayons,pencils,erasers,even water clours and brushes.
If you draw something really cool you might get a chance for it to be hanged on their walls,or even better,,you can participate in an auction where your drawing can be sold and the money goes to children suffering from cancer.
cool huh?

Favorite Dish: The cafe has many light dishes(soups,salads and wraps)
The cafe has free delivery and the minimum charge at the cafe is 2 Egyptian Pounds.

Address: 20 El Mir`ashli street,Zamalek

Comparison: least expensive

Directions: At the corner of Ahmed Hishmat street,when you reach Soudie supermarket,turn right.

Cilantro cafe - Jazirat az Zamalik

Cilantro cafe

Cilantro: Best coffee in town

The best thing in Cilantro’s setting, especially that glass front, is that it makes you feel that you’re still in Egypt, but the clean part of Egypt.
Today, the new "modern" coffee shops like Cilantro, made their way into the more upscale areas of Cairo, are modeled on American or European cafes.
They are enclosed, quiet, expensive, and elite and they are no longer segregated, since they provide a place where both sexes can mix socially and safely.
(from touregypt.com)

Favorite Dish: coffee,,all kinds and flavors.
Also offers a wide selection of ready made sandwiches,and cakes,where you can get them off the shelf.
